1. In "Overview of Actual File Restoration" (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa384575.aspx ), the table of requester actions has been updated to remove the call to SetBackupSucceeded and add a call to GetWriterComponents.

2. In "Using VSS Automated System Recovery for Disaster Recovery" (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa384630.aspx ), the registry key descriptions were revised to make them clearer.

3. In the IVssComponent::AddDifferencedFilesByLastModifyTime reference page (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa383462.aspx ), an introductory sentence was added to the Remarks section.

4. A new topic, "Backing Up and Restoring an FRS-Replicated SYSVOL Folder" (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc507518.aspx ), was added.

5. In the following method reference topics, the size parameter descriptions now specify that they are in bytes:

6. In the glossary definition for "auto-recovered shadow copy" (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa384651.aspx ), this sentence was deleted: "An auto-recovered shadow copy cannot be transportable."

7. In "What's New in VSS in Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista SP1" (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb972758.aspx ), the name of the Network Policy Service VSS writer was changed so that it is now correct.
